We have just finished our one year cruise of the south pacific. We do not need this for the inshore sailing we will be doing in the next few years.
This life raft was chosen not for cheap price (it was expensive) but for its high ratings when independently tested. This will self right unlike cheaper rafts and will not overturn easily. So if you are looking for a raft that does more than just give a psychological advantage and will work well in severe weather this might be suitable for you.
It will be within its service date until Jan 2015. Be ware of service costs when buying an out of date raft!! Build date: May 2011. Last service (before being sold brand new to us): Jan-12. So it has 2/3 of its service life left before needing an inspection.
Here is an ebay add for the raft. Cost $4690!
